macbook pro retina install guide

Postby viiviiviivii on Sat Dec 29, 2012 5:07 pm

Hi All,

I am a new fan of LinuxMint and I have been going through the steps of getting it installed on my MBPr.

I originally started with this link:

Here are some links of interest:

http://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/UbuntuPackages -- This one got my build back to life!

UPDATE
After trying some recommended install processes to get the nvidia driver working, then, subsequently borking my linux mint install, I have since re-installed from scratch.

By following the first link you will be able to do the same, but, you will not be able to run steam and the mpb will run very hot when playing flash movies.

I think by the next kernel release almost all of the remaining quirks will be resolved,

I will re-visit nvidia installation when i am less busy.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
